hello peeps i've not been on to much recently what with work and family ...right my 2010 QQ 15 dci has been seen to smoke on start up blue/grey in colour first thing in the morning could this be down to the colder weather and the engine management over fuelling or a dodgy glow plug..... or could this be some thing like oil seals ..the car has 19'000 on the clock

i hope so i didnt seem to notice it back in the summer thats what made me start to think it was temperature related....the motor runs fine if not better than when i first got it . i think its loosening up and it still surprises me with the power from just 1500cc.....love it....

I know the glow plug light doesnt stay on very long so on very cold mornings it may worth turning the ignition off after the light  goes out then on again  to give  the glow plugs a 2nd or even 3rd go, it may improve matters.  I got into the habit of doing this years ago trying to start old plant machinery on freezing winter mornings.
I know the car will start first  time anyway but a little more heat hurtBig smile

i get more in the winter , i know cold air etc,  but i do get it in the summer aswell, if i pull away fast ,  not too much, i look in the mirror and see a plume of smoke,  i think this is normal although i would think the amount and colour would let you know if something is wrong or not
